ABOUT US

Welcome to the Brixton Buddhist Community.

We are part of the Triratna Buddhist Community; an international Buddhist movement founded in 1967 by Urgyen Sangharakshita.

We aim to provide a local space for people in South London to meditate together and to explore the teachings of Buddhism. We offer classes, courses and retreats on meditation, mindfulness and Buddhism. Some of our events are ideal for newcomers curious to learn more about Buddhism while other activities offer more advanced teaching for those with an established practice. You don’t need to be a Buddhist to attend any of our events.

Our community offers a friendly atmosphere in which to explore or deepen your practice of meditation or discover how Buddhist principles can enrich your life.

During the pandemic many of our classes have moved online, and are available to watch now.

Outside of lockdown, we run our classes at Effra Space in Brixton on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Currently, because places are limited, a booking is required to attend in-person events and we’re not able to receive visitors outside of these times.

Find out about all our upcoming classes, courses, events and retreats by joining our mailing list or following us on Facebook. Talks on meditation and Buddhism given to Brixton Buddhist Community can be found on our YouTube channel.
